Obama Care’s Obama Scare

Obama Care is, as the Democrats love to remind its opposition, now the law of the land. In the ramp-up to the release of this Obama Scare Monster the public was fed a steady stream of reassuring deceptions accented with exaggerated descriptions of attractive features. What was excluded from their sales pitch was the huge appetite this Monster would have for the United States tax dollars. The basic theme was to hide the voracious appetite and the long claws and drooling maw filled with sharp shredding teeth and accentuate the pretty outfit they had dressed up the Monster to place the public at ease. It was the classic case of selling one item and delivering another which would result in prosecution for consumer fraud if you or I used a similar sales technique. The one valid central truth which the public was told was that for Obama Care to work it would require near full enrolment by the youthful and healthy members of American society to enroll in order for care to be affordable for the healthcare industry to provide for the older and less healthy members of the population. This would be the main element which would transform Obama Care into the Obama Scare Monster terrifying and feeding on those most needing healthcare by denying them the necessary care for them to lead a comfortable and productive life.

 

Then came the fateful day when the cage was opened and the Obama Scare Monster was released on an anxious and waiting American public. The entrance was less than spectacular as the Obama Scare Monster timidly crept from its cage half way before scurrying back into its protective cave refusing to interact with the anxiously awaiting American public. All attempts to coax the Obama Scare Monster to come out and interact with the awaiting American public fell on deaf ears. Something was not operative in the interface, or so we were informed but that given a few tweaks and adjustments and the promised delivery would be a wonderful and spectacular as had been promised. Unfortunately for the administration, the Obama Scare Monster continued to be more timid than scary. It remained lethargic and uncommunicative taking long months before it even began to interact with the American public. And then came the worst of all possible news, the enrollment numbers were lagging dreadfully behind what had been projected and necessary. The people were not taking to the Obama Scare Monster. Apparently the people were not as enthralled and this meant that expectations would need to be lowered.

 

This began the manipulations of the Obama Scare Monster to lessen its threats and allow only the comely adornments to be presented to the public. First they gave exemptions to the loyal segments to offer them immunity and protection from the worst threats from the Obama Scare Monster. Next came the pushing off for a year the employer mandate which clipped back the mighty claws of the Obama Scare Monster. Even this was not sufficient and the Obama Scare Monster was beginning to turn on its handlers and snap at them repeatedly. Next came the delaying of the individual mandate placing a muzzle over the Obama Scare Monster’s razor sharp teeth muffling its bark and neutering its fearsome bite. Still the Obama Scare Monster was not readily accepted, especially by the healthy youth so necessary for its wellbeing. Soon all that could be neutralized through postponing the most fearsome attributed of the Obama Scare Monster leaving only the pretty dressings viewable by the public but still the people were wary of accepting what the administration was selling.

 

What will be the future of Obama Care? Will the Obama Care be a successful system or will it really become a fearsome Obama Scare Monster eating up trillions of dollars and bankrupting the American budgets? Will all the postponed features ever be enacted or will the Obama Scare Monster die before it is fully revealed? Perhaps the Obama Scare Monster was never really something which was supposed to be loosed as it never had any real teeth or claws but was simply a sweet pet disguised as a monster in order to scare the public into demanding the government save them and instead of the Obama Scare Monster to give them the sweet and purring healthcare system like the Europeans and Canadians have already implemented. That may be the real secret of Obama Care, that it was presented as a terrifying plan that posed to destroy the American healthcare industry while bankrupting the nation thus forcing the transformation of the greatest healthcare system the world had known into another identical single payer government healthcare system that lurches forward with increasing delays and slowed advancement of medical research and developments. Perhaps the entire idea was to scare the American public into accepting mediocrity in the guise of saving them from an even worse disaster which the Obama administration was threatening to release. The final question is will the American people acquiesce to this devilish plan or demand that government do whatever is required to restore the healthcare industry to its former glorious and proven level by undoing every bit of damage they have wielded. Time will tell but it is hoped that the Americans will demand exceptionalism even if their President refuses to recognize such himself.

It’s More Than Just Syria, Remember?

With the morning, noon, and night Syria this, Syria that, it is difficult to remember the plethora of disasters which had been plaguing President Barack Obama and the legislative initiatives which had been dominating the headlines, AM political talk shows, and the late night comedians. Before we had our lesson in translating Arabic, care of Senator John McCain, with his informing a curious public that when terrorists and al-Qaeda or Muslim Brotherhood fighters are screaming “Allahu Akbar” that it means “Thank G0d” and not “Allah is the greatest,” we had former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s infamous quote of, “What difference now does it make,” regarding the murder of four brave Americans in Benghazi including Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department staff member Sean Smith and Former SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, the last two continued to fight for their lives for close to seven hours painting the mortar position which eventually killed them but nobody was coming, they had all been ordered to stand down. We still have not been privileged to be told where the stand down orders originated and we are now fully aware that during the campaign when Hillary Clinton decried, “Who do you want answering that telephone at 3:00 in the middle of the night?” We now know that it is neither Hillary Clinton nor Barack Obama. It probably has not improved all that greatly replacing Ms. Clinton as Secretary of State with John Kerry or with adding as Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel.

 

Then there are plans to provide anywhere from eleven to twenty-plus million undocumented workers a path to citizenship despite that they are more accurately described as illegal aliens; though I get the feeling that they have other names depending on which side of the argument one sits. There are those mostly amongst the Republicans who look at the illegal aliens as a low cost workforce which can benefit big business while many Democrats view these illegal aliens as future Democrat voters who very well might sway future elections such that the Democrats retain a majority in both the House and the Senate and retain the White House, well, at least for the foreseeable future. Remember the discussions as to whether we should refer to these illegal aliens as undocumented workers, unfortunates simply seeking a better life for their families, migrant workers, seasonal workers or any of any of a collection of misleading terminology had been raging for months. The main thing is that you must never refer to the “path to citizenship” as “amnesty”. No matter how you describe these illegal aliens, you must ignore the fact that these people crossed our borders, broke our immigration laws, jumped the line, and began their American experience by stealing somebody’s identity and instead show compassion and understanding. We need to remember that the immigration problem also has a group of politicians who have met and plotted out a path which will lead to a resolution by which everybody will receive fair treatment. These legislators go by the name of “Gang of Eight” and includes the following Senators;  John McCain (R-Ariz.), Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Michael Bennet (D-Colo.). Of course there is also one small peculiarity to the immigrations debate, apparently there is a sizeable portion of the population who would support President Obama simply making the illegal aliens legal citizens by Presidential edict and going around the Congress and the Constitution. With the way everybody is paying attention to Syria, President Obama just might get away with simply decreeing citizenship for the illegal aliens with blanket amnesty, or whatever it will be called to avoid using the dreaded amnesty terminology, by Presidential Executive Order. President Clinton’s aide Paul Begala summed it up perfectly when he stated, “Stroke of the pen. Law of the land. Kinda cool.”

 

Then there is less than a month before Obamacare requires Americans to register with health exchanges in order to attain health insurance or else pay the fine. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, despite the piecemeal enactment being broken apart as President Obama selectively grants favored groups, companies, unions and politicians waivers from having to comply with Obamacare, is still barreling forward to forever drastically change the way Americans receive healthcare. Add to that the little inconvenience of postponing the implementation of the employer mandate but not the personal mandate means that businesses can simply refuse to insure their workers while the employees will have to either get insurance or pay a fine. Then there is the small miracle which is predicted to become very popular is opting for paying the fine for being uninsured as the fine is significantly less than insurance will end up costing very quickly. The first year the cost for insurance will be affordable, yet later when more people choose to opt out of buying insurance and simply pay the fine, which will cost less, knowing full well that they can always buy insurance immediately should they develop a serious health emergency without any fears that they could be turned down, costs will skyrocket. The eventual aim of Obamacare is to bankrupt the insurance providers forcing everyone on to a single payer government healthcare system. The real fiasco here is that both the majority of the Democrats and Republicans are supportive of forcing the entirety of the population of the United States into government healthcare so neither side will take any actions which will actually prevent the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act from taking effect. What made the reality that the aim is to collapse the health insurance industry came when President Obama gave employers an extra year before they will be required to insure their full-time employees. This will place all of the costs on the individual while the employers simply stop providing health insurance. The initial casualties have already been put on display as many employers have cancelled the options for insuring an employee’s spouse and even children. Another consequence has been the massive shift in hiring from full-time employees to a significant percentage of part-time employees. The percentage of part-time employment making up the new jobs each month is well over fifty percent and approached well over seventy-five percent. Who would have figured out that the most visible change caused by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act would end up being a shift to mostly part-time employees in order to get around the draconian measures and requirements on employers for providing healthcare for their employees but only those who are full-time.

 

Syria is a terrible situation that is likely to only get worse with time but it is not the only problem on the horizon as demonstrated above. What makes the state of the world even more troublesome is that Syria is far from the only problem in the Middle East and North Africa. Tunisia has devolved back into a series of chaotic demonstrations with the people very adamant that they want a far more secular government and will not tolerate creeping Sharia. Libya never actually established a national government and has broken up into mostly tribal forces exerting their influence over their separate tribal areas. Many of the cities either belong to a local tribal leader or to al-Qaeda or other terrorist forces. Mali is still in the throes of a civil war and the French are not securing much beyond the major cities. Nigeria is in a state of civil war with the Islamic forces controlling the north and destroying churches and murdering Christians where the two influences border each other. The Islamist forces are slowly pushing southward sewing destruction to everything of a Christian influence as they proceed. The Egyptian military has removed President Morsi and the Truth and Justice Party from control over all the levers of the government halting their drifting towards Islamist Sharia governance. Turkey is experiencing Sunni-Shiite violence with many of the Shiite fighters taking refuge in Iraq and being supplied by Iran and receiving training from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRCG). Yemen is in the grasp of a civil war with tribal forces in the northern parts of the country while fighting to hold off al-Qaeda from taking over the southern parts of the nation including some of its most vital ports. Somalia and the Horn of Africa is still an unruly disaster with the cities broken up into small enclaves with violence the rule, not the exception. And then there are the secretive peace negotiations between the Israelis and the Palestinians which are being held under a cloak of silence. Nobody appears to be certain about anything concerning these negotiations which with knowing President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, Secretary of Defense Hagel and the State Department can only make any supporters of Israel extremely nervous. In addition the Israelis are represented by a Post-Zionist Tzipi Livni who was one of those who assisted in crafting the offers under Ehud Barak which offered to split Jerusalem and return over ninety percent, some have noted it was close to ninety-seven or ninety-eight percent of Judea and Samaria, to make up the Palestinian State. Add the rumors that President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Kerry provided Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Palestinian Chief Negotiator Saeb Erekat letters guaranteeing them that every single Palestinian demand and precondition would be granted even if the United States had to force such a solution upon the Israelis. That would include removing close to nine-hundred-thousand Jews from Judea and Samaria, dividing Jerusalem placing all of Jerusalem’s holy sites beyond the reach and unable to be visited by the Israelis, and forcing an influx of as many as five and a half million Palestinian refugees inside pre-1967 Israel making the Palestinians the majority population in Israel thus erasing the Jewish State. I really hate rumors.

Prepare for Single Payer Government Healthcare

The fight to defund or otherwise repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), better known as Obamacare, is a mute cause as it is a false flag put in place to take the United States as swiftly as can be legislated to the instituting of a single payer federal healthcare system similar to those in Britain, Canada, and the rest of Europe. As many who have studied these systems have already realized, and the rest will find out soon enough, such a method for addressing the delivery of healthcare to a nation’s population results in a lower level of care; longer waits to see specialists or even your regular physician; inability for the system to address any healthcare emergency situations such as a flu epidemic; the slowing of medical breakthroughs, new drugs and innovative treatments eventually bringing such necessary advances to a complete dead stop; and the eventual destruction of the entire healthcare industry due to creeping increase in percentage of federal budget channeled into healthcare causing higher taxation and less funds available for any other government expenditure. Much of the financial breakdown which has strangled much of Europe economically can be traced at least partially to the costs of government provided healthcare. Another problem directly tied to government healthcare is the lowering of physician and healthcare worker salaries compared to other occupations leading to lower numbers of individuals choosing to go into the medical fields eventually leading to shortages which only make the strain on the system increasing and the waiting lists growing longer until total failure becomes the obvious end result. But first we have to enact and then destroy Obamacare so that the people clamor for the government to come to the rescue and completely take control of the nation’s healthcare system when it becomes obvious the system is nearing collapse. So, how does this happen?

 

The first item necessary is to understand the entire scheme behind Obamacare. Obamacare was never intended to function and was sculpted for failure. One of the reasons that President Obama is granting waivers is not solely to reward and protect his friends and those who supported his campaigns, though that is how it often appears, but President Obama is granting waivers because it does not matter whether or not a sizeable percentage of the population is covered by Obamacare or not, what matters is for Obamacare to become unworkable and destroy the healthcare industry so completely and all the other related industries, especially the health insurance companies, such that there is no system left of healthcare as we have known it for all of our lives thus making government run single payer healthcare as the only option available in the end. Probably the greatest single exception granted by President Obama was delaying the employer mandate to provide insurance from taking place as scheduled and allowing it to be pushed off for one year, and I would not doubt if next year it is pushed another year into the future, was not done just to give large corporations a pass but to force even more people to have to use either the government provided exchanges, whether they be provided by your state or  left to the Federal Government to provide, or to option to pay the relatively minimal fee as an uninsured person. The aim is for the exchanges as well as other insurance plans to become exorbitantly expensive until nobody bothers to get insurance and instead pay the penalty which will costs thousands of dollars less than insurance. And why not since if you suddenly develop a serious medical problem you can always get insurance to cover that emergency and then return to paying the minimal fee and forgo expensive insurance. Yes, this will cause a collapse of the insurance industry in record time and also push anybody needing care into the government healthcare exchanges which is the forerunner of single payer government healthcare. So, why won’t our political representatives listen and deal a deathblow to Obamacare as so many have petitioned them to do?

 

This is the easiest but also most disgusting truth which drives straight to the heart of the majority of the problems with so many subjects concerning government and its place in the American public and each individual life within. The problem comes from the basic desire of lifelong politicians to gain control, or at the least influence, over every single item in the lives of the individual. These new lords of the ruling class desire control, and not just a little control but complete and unchallengeable control over every instance of your life. The conservatives desire to control over morality while the liberals want control over your wealth and societal norms. Both see granting the government control over many parts of our lives as simply a necessary influence in order to leverage their powers and influences on the rest of our behavior. If every choice you might face in your life instead of being made by the individual is granted to some government bureaucrat, then the government has that much more control, and the name of the game is control. Think about why the enforcement for Obamacare is not tasked to the Health and Human Services Department but is instead invested with the Internal Revenue Service. Why are they giving complete knowledge of your health and your every medical need to the same people who also hold a complete record of your financial information? Could it be that the IRS is very practiced at enforcement and have the most ruthless enforcement agents and protocols of any department within the government? Of course that is why. And the one item we must understand is that the vast majority of these lifetime powerbroker politicians seek to have as much ultimate control over the lives of the American public, serfs as they see it, and having an agency which has access to all of your financial and healthcare information and can exercise virtually unlimited control over your healthcare gives them the power of literally life and death over each and every individual. That is why Obamacare will be allowed to become the law of the land and is planned to utterly fail and fail horrifically. Once their feint into a new approach to healthcare has exploded and the public is in panic, then they will enact what they really wanted from the beginning, single payer, government healthcare, and after that freedom and liberty will have all but died in America.
